There’s plenty of ways to enjoy the NBA Draft, even if your team doesn’t have a pick in the first round or at all. Most sportsbooks are offering prop bets on tonight’s draft, here are my best prop bets for tonight’s NBA Draft.
Cole Anthony Draft Position- Under 20.5 (-115)
At one point considered a contender to be the top pick in this draft, an injury-riddled freshman season has changed that for Cole Anthony. There’s concern about his health, athleticism, and upside compared to some other guards, which has caused his stock to drop. Some mock drafts are now projecting him to fall to the 20s, but I think his talent is too good to pass up for several teams before pick 20, so bet on him to come off the board before then.
Saddiq Bey Draft Position- Over 14.5 (+225)
This pick is purely for the value, as there’s a more than decent chance Bey is selected in the late lottery. However, only one or two teams have to pass on him for this bet to cash, and at greater than two-to-one odds, I think it’s worth taking a shot on Bey to fall out of the lottery.
Number of Seniors taken in the first round- Over 1.5 (+170)
This is another pick that I feel offers good value at plus money. TCU’s Desmond Bane is almost certain to be selected in round one, so you would only need one other senior to be picked late first in order to get the over. I’d say Grant Riller has more than a 50% chance to go in the first. Peyton Pritchard has been rising on draft board’s recently, and there’s rumors that he could end up sneaking into the late first.
